John Leckie Ake (August 29, 1861 – May 11, 1887) was an American Major League Baseball player who played as a third baseman for the 1884 Baltimore Orioles of the American Association (AA).

Before and after his Major league career, he played for many professional minor league baseball teams from 1881 until his death in 1887.
